For the first time in it’s 56-year history, the iconic ITV soap is leaving Manchester and coming to a place near you!

Corrie’s iconic sets, props, cobbles, costumes and certain memorabilla will go on tour this August – premiering at the SECC in Glasgow from 27th August – 1st January before relocating to Belfast and across the UK.

The tour will feature a purpose built structure and will feature the sets we’ve grown to love in an extraordinary environment.

Fan favourite, Alison King (Carla Connor), will be present on tours and you’ll be able to take a trip down memory lane, remembering some of the best-loved characters and storylines.

Alison revealed that she was returning as a guest on the Corrie tour, a mere TWO MONTHS after leaving the soap.

On Good Morning Britain earlier today, she gave Richard Arnold a look around the huge touring set.

"It's so surreal being back here. I've done so many scenes here. I'm missing Roy's cinnamon buns!" Alison admitted.

"I think it's going to be lovely for people to walk through the sets when the show opens. We've literally packed up everything in a suitcase - memorabilia, costumes, props - and are taking it on tour. It's like you've never seen it before.

You'll get to see iconic dwellings such as Roy's Rolls, The Kabin and walk through the Rovers Return doors...

With tickets expecting to sell faster than Roy’s bacon rolls, don’t miss out!

Tours will run daily and you can get your hands on some tickets here.
